Studies Shows “Fat Talkers” Are Less Liked by Peers
Date:5/29/2013

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

In a report on sciencedaily.com, a research was done that shows that women who engage in the “fat talk,” which includes negative remarks that are made in relation to eating, exercise, or their bodies, aren’t liked as much by their peers as those who don’t talk negatively about themselves.

The study was led by Alexandra Corning, who is the research associate professor of psychology and the director of Notre Dame’s Body Image and Eating Disorder Lab; college-aged women were presented with photos of women who were noticeably thin or noticeably overweight, who engaged in either “fat talk” or positive body talk. The participants were asked to rate these women on different dimensions, like how likeable they were.

Those women in the photos were rated less likeable when they made “fat talk” statements about their bodies, regardless of if they were overweight or not. The ones who made positive comments on their physical image were rated more likeable by the participants.

"Though it has become a regular part of everyday conversation, 'fat talk' is far from innocuous," according to Corning.

"It is strongly associated with, and can even cause, body dissatisfaction, which is a known risk factor for the development of eating disorders."

Psychologists believe that fat talk has been thought to initiate and strengthen a woman’s social bonds. The research done by Corning has resulted in the findings that fat talkers are less liked than those women who speak positively about their bodies.

"These findings are important because they raise awareness about how women actually are being perceived when they engage in this self-abasing kind of talk," Corning says.

If body image is important to a person, taking diet supplements can help them lose weight.
